THE first issue of The Methodist Who s Who was surrounded by special 
difficulties ; but the sale of the book showed how much it was appre 
ciated in all parts of the country. The Second Edition was much 
enlarged, and had even greater success. To the present issue large 
additions have been made which bring the Methodism of our Colonies 
and the United States into intimate touch with the Methodism of 
our own country and the Mission field. Warm congratulations and 
expressions of interest have been received from all parts of the globe. 
The English lists of ministers and laymen have also been much 

The brief biographies contain details as to each man s personal 
history, his public work, his church life, his writings, studies, recrea 
tions, and other points of interest. Such pages will make ministers 
and people better known to each other, and will bind together the 
various branches of the Methodist family. The book makes a wider 
appeal to members of other Churches and to all who wish to know 
something about Methodist men of the time. They will find here 
much information which can be gained nowhere else. 

One American reviewer carefully examined 1,600 entries and 
found that the most popular recreations were : Cycling, 253 ; golf, 
192 ; walking, 175 ; gardening, 98 ; cricket, 80 ; photography, 75 ; 
fishing, 68 ; music, 66 ; tennis, 66 ; reading, 65 ; travel, 50 ; motor 
ing, 37 ; chess, 34 ; hunting, 29 ; swimming, 21 ; horseback-riding, 
9 ; driving, 9. It seems that the crowning fondness is for cycling a 
sport, by the way, which is little followed in America. We believe that 
in America the favourite recreations are hunting, fishing, and garden 
ing. Some very unusual recreations are mentioned. Three subjects 
confess their partiality for Freemasonry ; three, hard work ; four, 
collecting portraits and autographs ; five, collecting Wesleyana ; 
one, naval history ; one, numismatics ; one, psychic research ; one, 
inventing ; one, collecting stamps ; two, works of God ; four, public 
work ; one, bee-keeping. The strangest recreation recorded is that 
of reading Annual Conference Minutes. 

The utmost pains have been taken to secure accuracy ; but we 
cannot hope to have escaped all mistakes. Any corrections sent 
to 25-35 City Road, London, E.C., will be valued. It is hoped that 
The Methodist Who s Who will become a household friend, and establish 
its claim to a long life of influence and prosperity. 






The METHODIST RECORDER devotes itself solely to the promotion of the interests of 
Methodism. Its columns are open to the discussion, from every point of view, of all 
current Methodist Topics of Interest, the only condition being the absence of asperity and 
personalities on the part of correspondents.
